Bike Hit and Run

I've been filming with a man who was knocked off his bike by a hit-and-run driver in South Yorkshire. Jim Ward says some motorists see cyclists as "fair game". He was out riding with his brother when they were verbally abused and then he was driven into. Jim suffered a broken collar bone, a double break in his hand and cracked ribs as well as mental scars.

Care Home Visiting

The family of a 91-year-old man are urging his wife's care home in Sheffield to allow them to create a bubble so he can visit her. Michael Grantham uses a wheelchair and needs help to visit his wife at Holmwood Care Home.

The home says its policy was designed to "mitigate the risk of the virus".
